The wild isn't the safest place for a fawn, especially a newborn with an injured leg. That's why one nature lover stepped in when he saw a baby deer stumbling around, trying to keep up with her mom and twin brother.
The man, who goes by the name Darius and lives somewhere out west, realized he had to do something when the mom took off and left the injured fawn behind. So he took the baby deer in. He made a pretty comfy bed for her, which included one of his shirts, and fed her every four hours.
He also made a splint out of a cardboard cereal box, so her leg would heal.
Pretty soon, the deer bonded with his other pets, especially Darius's Bernese Mountain dog, Mack. Mack kept a pretty close eye on the fawn, never letting her stray very far.
Still, Darius knew he'd eventually have to send her back into the wild, so he didn't give her a name, so he wouldn't get too attached. And sure enough, when her leg healed, Darius started taking the fawn to the fields where the other deer were. But she wouldn't leave his side!
Until one day, she spotted her mom, and ran off to join her.
Since the fawn rejoined her mom, Darius has spotted the whole family together. As he told the Dodo, "It is [a] very, very good feeling seeing them safe roaming around."
You can watch the whole story. It's long, but so worth it!
